Meet Smokey JO

I know, I know I am crazy!! A few weeks ago a family whom I used to teach horseback riding lessons to a few years agao called me. Their daughter moved out of the house and they wanted to move back to California, but the only thing holding them back are their two beloved horses. She asked me if I were interested in buying them. I told her I was not in the position to own a second or third horse and that I didnt really have the money to buy one. She called me back aobut three hours later and asked if she gave them to me for fee, with some hay, if I would then take them. I made a few phone calles and arranged to have one of the horses brought to the barn I have my mare at, and the other to a friends barn down the street. So long story short I have another horse. His name is smokey Jo. He is a registerd race bread quarter horse, and has done lots of ranch work. I am going to use him for jumping. I will take my first ride on him monday night...(he had not be ridden in two years) and see how things go. He is aobut 16hh maby 16.1, I will need to measure. So here are some fun pictures of my new guy, he really needs a bath!!! and a blue halter!!!
